Sad but inevitable. Cyclists and large vehicles just do not mix well on the roads. Likewise pedestrians and cyclists on pavements....

Sad to hear - but cyclists are all over the place on our roads.
And - potholes and huge haulage lorries what chance do cyclists have.
And yes - I cycled through Vauxhall Cross for about 8 years - but then there weren't the huge lorries and the roads were in better condition.
